Shave and a Beer Cut

Mojo Barbershop arrives in Chinatown

Mojo Barbershop It happened again.

Your Bradley Cooperesque cutie went in for a trim and came out looking like Uncle Fester.

You’ve been trying to cut him off from that fifteen-dollar-a-cut chain for months. But the moment he hears the words “salon” or “stylist” things get a little hairy.

You need a man-friendly place where he can get a groom with a view without getting all bearded out.

Mojo Barbershop Welcome to Mojo Barbershop.

Under the old-fashioned striped pole that just popped up on Bethel Street, husband-and-wife team Matt Leo and Marian Lee created a classic gentlemen’s barbershop with a few modern, but still masculine luxuries.

There’s nothing sissy about a straight razor shave, even if it does come with a mint hot towel and temple massage. He won’t fight a detox face treatment when it happens in front of a flat-screen television broadcasting the big game. And before he figures out the “Hand & Foot Detailing” session really means manicure and pedicure, the Mojo staff will distract him with an ice-cold beer and a vintage Playboy or Surfer magazine while he reclines in a leather La-Z Boy.

Prices range from $22 for a buzz cut to $65 for a cut and shave.

So he can be a Macho Macho Man without resembling The Village People.

Snip, Snip Hooray.

Mojo Barbershop is slated to open next week at 1157 Bethel St. For now, beer will be available for purchase Friday and Saturday only. You can make reservations now for appointments after the grand opening on November 4. E-mail or go to Mojo’s website for more information.
